Home Minister addressed the concluding session of All India Police Science Congress
Arms Act, Narcotics Act will also be amended in this session of Parliament
Tightening the security of the borders due to terrorist threats is our top priority.
Lucknow, November 29: Union Home Minister Amit Shah has said that to safeguard from the seeds of terrorism which are sown by our neighborhood, it is necessary to further improve the security of the borders. There should be an imprecise coordination between the paramilitary forces and the state police. The Government of India has taken up a huge task of making massive changes in Indian Penal Code( IPC) and Code of Criminal Procedure(CrPC). In this session of the Parliament, the Arms Act is changing, the Narcotics Act is also legally amended and after that it will amend the IPC and CrPC.
Shah was addressing the closing ceremony of All India Police Science Congress(AIPSC) 2019 on Friday. We are going to set up a Central Defense Power University and will open a college in states of the country where there is no police university so that subject of professional police will be taught. In these universities, the subjects of forensic science, law, prosecution and investigation will be taught including the education of how to run a police station will also be given. He said that even before when he was the Home Minister of Gujarat, he had got an opportunity to attend All India Police Science Congress held there.
He said that soldiers, who are responsible for our security everywhere, should be respected at all times. He said that so far more than 35 thousand soldiers have martyred while doing their duties by eliminating terrorism and naxalism etc. The people of the country have to realize that even when a brother goes to get his sister’s house to tie a rakhi, then at that period of time the police constable manages traffic. When you are celebrating Holi or Diwali, even on that day, the police personnel worry about law and order.
He said that thousands of soldiers have sacrificed their lives for the safety of the country, then the security of the country has been ensured. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has established a grand police memorial in Delhi. Can we make this memorial a source of police consciousness in our respective states? It is our priority to instill a sense of respect for the police in the minds of every citizen of the country. Until we cannot do this, we cannot properly carry out internal security. He urged the officials present that an All India Police Science Congress should be only on the subject that what happened to all the resolutions passed from 1960 to 2019?
The Home Minister said that before Yogi Adityanath became the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, there was a lot of discussion about the law and order here. Today I can say both as the BJP President and the Home Minister of the country that Yogi ji has greatly improved the law and order of Uttar Pradesh.
Crime is not local: Yogi Adityanath
Speaking on the occasion, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said that the scope of crime has expanded rather than being local. Today it needs to be understood that as the scope of crime is expanding, we will have to increase the use of technology accordingly. In the Kumbh Mela, the biggest success of our security forces was not to let a single incident happen by using the command and control appropriately. Local administration also introduced better use of technology.
Speaking on Ayodhya-dispute, Yogi said “The 500-year dispute ended after the Supreme Court ruled Ayodhya. Along with that, it was a commendable step for our police to maintain harmony at that time. It is being appreciated all over the world.”
Various ministers and senior officials including Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya and Dr. Dinesh Sharma were present in the program organized at the Police Headquarters of Lucknow. Earlier, Home Minister Amit Shah, who arrived in Lucknow, was welcomed by Law Minister Brajesh Pathak, Khadi Village Industries Minister Siddharth Nath Singh and Finance Minister Suresh Khanna at the airport.
